Jefferson D. Pullen

JEFFERSON D. PULLEN, wholesale and retail grocer, is a son of John C. Pullen, who married Pauline Wheeler, and by her became the father of ten children. The father died in 1868 and the mother in 1877. Our subject is the ninth child, and in his juvenile days received a fair education. At the age of eighteen he began farming for himself and continued up to 1882, when he came to Pulaski, and engaged in his present business in partnership with J. S. Childress, and has succeeded beyond his expectations from a financial stand point. He was married in 1881 to Maggie Johnson, daughter of Samuel and Bettie Johnson, old and prominent settlers of Giles County. Mr. Pullen is a Democrat, and cast his first presidential vote for Hancock. He and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South.
